Trainee - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Just after the paramedics witness the purse snatching, when Johnny and Ed take off after the two purse snatchers, there are four cars parked at the curb in front of the squad, but just before Johnny leaps over the white picket fence, behind him we see that there are now six parked cars in front of the squad.

Crash - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: At the end of the 'crashed plane in a tree' rescue, Tom falls upside down in front of Roy and John, who are standing on branches way high up in the tree. Then just as the scene ends and the screen fades out, we can still see Gary Crosby (Tom) having fun jumping hard up and down on that "tree branch" that he's now also standing on, and Randy Mantooth starts cracking up.

Crash - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When the babysitter runs into Rampart with the child who swallowed phenobarbital pills, Brackett picks the boy up and carries him into treatment 5 (window on door), but in the following shots from inside the room we can see they're actually in treatment 2 (windowless door and set up differently). Then after they place the pacemaker Dixie leaves the room, and in the shot from the hallway she's coming out of treatment 5.

Hang-Up - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: While Brackett is treating the man who was in a fight, it cuts to Early walking down the hallway, and in the shot from the hallway he's entering treatment 4 which is beside the nurses' station, but in the next shot from inside the room we see he's actually in treatment 2, the one beside the receiving entrance.

Crash - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: After Sharon calls out Dr. Early's name in the hallway, because paging him didn't occur to her, when she finds Early they walk into treatment 2 in the shot from the hallway, but in the shot from inside the room they're all in treatment 5, not 2.

Weird Wednesday - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When the guys are listening to the baseball game on the radio, dispatch drops tones for Engine 16 and only Squad 51, yet Chet turns the radio off, and all the engine company guys rush out of the day room then head to their rig, even though it's only Roy and John that were dispatched.

Weird Wednesday - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Roy breaks the key in the squad's ignition, while he's holding the broken piece in the two wide shots there's something dangling from the key's hole (another key/keychain), but in the closeup it's just the broken bit in his hand.

Smoke Eater - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: After Dr. Early is called a miracle worker and then again tries unsuccessfully to get the apple from the machine, it cuts to Squad 51 pulling backwards into the apparatus bay, and the engine we see parked in the bay is the Crown from the first two seasons, not their current Ward LaFrance.

Transition - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: When Gil's in the basket ride at the amusement park, while Captain Stanley swings the line that Johnny's hanging on, in the closeups the open cage door is facing Johnny, but in the long shot looking up the basket's open door is on the opposite side, and Johnny would not have been able to enter it as easily.

Transition - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: When Roy walks into the ER with the chemical burn patient they rescued from a kitchen filled with hydrogen sulfide, Dixie tells them treatment 1 which has a windowless door, but in the shot from inside the room the door has a window, and we can tell it's treatment 3 they're in.

Transition - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: After Brackett and Johnny try to convince Gil that he's not responsible for the MI patient's death, when Johnny walks out of the treatment room he says he's going to check on Roy, and as he opens the door we can tell that he's in the room across from the nurses' station. Then when he and Roy leave the treatment room where Early had examined Roy, we can see that it's the very same treatment room that Johnny had just been in with Brackett.

The Bash - S4-E14

Revealing mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the bomb threat, just as they roll up on scene, in this specific POV the corner edges of the screen are blacked out due to the lens that was used, but when it cuts to other angles it's gone, then it reappears with that POV. We see it three times.

Other mistake: After Station 51 is dispatched to the structure fire, just as Roy and Johnny start heading upstairs we see footage from 4x3, "Gossip," when Johnny brings the hose to the stairs at the chemical fire, but the line doesn't reach so he leaves the hose at the bottom step, and they continue up.

Details - S4-E12

Other mistake: During the structure fire, when Engine 98 rolls up we can see the large red vinyl adhered to the top of the engine's cab. Then when Truck 106 rolls up we see its company number 106 on the door, but in the overhead shot we can see the number 8 on the roof of the cab, not 106. This presumably means that the door has one of the prop dept's magnetic decals imprinted with 106, and the roof still shows the Truck company's real number.

Camera Bug - S4-E10

Other mistake: While Roy and John are at 68's, Roy goes to the stove to see what Bob was cooking when he started having pain, and the closeup footage we see of the pot of bubbling chilli is the same as some of the footage of Chet's chilli in 4x1, "The Screenwriter," when 'Miss October' stops by the station.
